Before we had MasterCard, we had Master Charge and if you believe this commercial it was very empowering to have one. This is not how it was perceived by most members of my family. To them, buying stuff on credit was one of the worst things you could do and for most of my life I was terrified of using a credit card. If only had seen this commercial from the late seventies, with its message of credit empowerment, maybe I would have felt very differently?
